Hanging Rock State Park

On “House Rock” at Hanging Rock State Park

In late March we visited Hanging Rock State Park for the first time. It’s located North of Winston Salem in the most easterly mountains in North Carolina, the Sauratowns. There are some good day hiking trails, including the path to Hanging Rock, waterfalls, as well as other trails along creeks, and up to another overlook at House Rock. We stayed in a cabin for two nights, but there are also campsites available. It’s one of those true natural hiking places where you have to remind yourself that there are no safety measures at the top to stop you from just walking off the ledge.
